Hire Kyle as your coach: http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/services/   Questions on the show: Q1: Hey Kyle, I travel a lot for work and want to pick up some small equipment to take with me when I can't get to a gym. What can I get without spending too much money?  Q2: I have my first powerlifting meet coming up at the end of January. In terms of competition day, what's your approach to warm-ups, handling nerves, and managing energy levels throughout the day? Q3: I know most people prefer a gradual approach to fat loss. However, is there ever a case when a more aggressive approach makes sense?  Q4: How do you program to address specific weaknesses in each of the three main lifts? Or do you not pay much attention to it? Q5: I know you guys have talked about intensity techniques before, but are there specific ones (i.e., drop sets, supersets, etc.) that you find particularly effective for muscle growth? Also, how should they be incorporated into a program?   Connect with Kyle:  KyleHuntFitness@gmail.com http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/   Connect with Derek: @DerekCharlebois   Programs: Absolute Progress 2.0 Absolute Strength 3.0 Absolute Muscle    The Hunt Fitness FREE Flexible Dieting Manual   Bodybuilding For Beginners on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3etmDbp   Get 10% OFF PR Breaker Supplements DISCOUNT CODE: “HUNT” at https://www.prbreaker.com/discount/HUNT
How to Make Progress as an Advanced Lifter, Activation Exercises and Pre-workout Nutrition [Q&A]

How to Make Progress as an Advanced Lifter, Activation Exercises and Pre-workout Nutrition [Q&A]
In this episode, Kyle and Derek answer questions from listeners. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!    Questions on the show: I have a question for you and Derek about personal training certifications. I am currently in a master's program for Exercise science and working in the field in a clinical setting, but I want to get a personal training certification so I could potentially do that as a side job as I notice that a lot of gyms/studios require it. However, there are so many out there and I'm unsure which one to invest money in. I am curious which ones you and Derek have and why you chose those certs. I really just do not want to waste money on the wrong one!What are your thoughts on activation exercises? Are they worth it or a waste of time?Hey Kyle, like yourself, I have been training for close to 20 years. I'm now in my mid 30s and wondering if I have built all of the muscle I will in my lifetime? I still love training so it's not like I am going to stop. But, I guess my question is, what can I do to continue making gains as an advanced lifter? Or, is it not possible? I train early in the morning and typically train fasted. I enjoy training on an empty stomach but wonder if I should try to eat something before training? I have time so that is not a factor. Hi guys, I am traveling for most of December and my training time will be very limited. I'm worried about losing muscle and strength. One, should I be concerned? Two, if I do lose muscle and strength, how long will it take for me to gain it back?   Hire Kyle as your coach: http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/services/   Connect with Kyle:  http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/ Instagram: @huntfitness YouTube: @HuntFitnessTV   Connect with Derek: @DerekCharlebois     Absolute Progress 2.0   Absolute Muscle    The Hunt Fitness FREE Flexible Dieting Manual   Bodybuilding For Beginners on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3etmDbp   Get 10% OFF PR Breaker Supplements DISCOUNT CODE: "HUNT" at https://www.prbreaker.com/discount/HUNT
